Family: Pedaliaceae
Origin: Madagascar
CaudexSmall shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterYellow/orange flowers

This unusual succulent caudex plant from Madagascar has 2" bright yellow flowers and soft velvet leaves, so fun to touch. The flowers are follower by 1.5-2" size, bizarre looking fruit with multiple sticky "horns", those you don't want to touch! They stick to about anything, using miscoscopic hooks on the end of each "horn". The plant grows in well-drained soil, and unlike many succulents, prefers lots of water along with full sun. It forms large caudex. The stem can reach 6 ft.
